[Hollins College, Roanoke, Virginia], to Samuel Vaughan by George Garrett( )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Concerning the manuscript for Ralegh and his wish to "clarify a few things generally, & question the method as well, before we make some serious mistakes...I think your memo of June based upon some serious misapprehensions of the whole of the MS and of its aims & is essential to my choice & my method that I should be faithful to the 'truth', as it is known, of the man's life & of the times. That is prerequisite for the fiction to work;" explaining and justifying the choices he has made in writing the novel with specific examples of narrative device choices; saying "One of the things this book is supposed to be 'about', one element of what it 'means', is how we imagine history. Any history. How we imagine the world we live in, create it as it were, then have to live in it, for better or worse. That is, reduced to blueprint, it's a book 'about' the human imagination, its limits & its possibilities. 'Meaning' is important to me only as yet another part of the magic of a story. It too, is a tool. It is used, then expendable. which, you see, is what happens. At the end -- if we get there -- it becomes pure event, all imagination & indeed the massive structure of this imagined & imaginary world are refined away & vanish...The movement of this story is from almost pure passivity to almost pure action. It could be, but isn't, as still & passive as the 'front' on 'Heart of Darkness' where the men are becalmed on a sailboat & Marlowe tells them the Kurtz story. I've reversed that. For my purposes the passivity is active in sense that the consciousness of the 3 men is, on the edge of sleep & dreams but not quite there, wildly active, jumpy, nervous. And the scene at the end is the opposite, almost tranquil. So, in a sense, the movement is that the reader begins to dream his way into history; through this means, the imagination is involved, becomes more & more active & concentrated. Until by the end it becomes possible, briefly, an earned right, to be with Ralegh on the scaffold;" explaining that he feels any attempts to change it would be "a total loss to me. I know one thing, it would not be a better book;" discussing the actual method of editing proposed for his book; adding "Let's don't lose sight of the big picture, please, even as we handle a lot of little details. I think that's what I'm trying say. And trying to find out if we have in mind the same big picture."

Informing him that he will be finished teaching at the University of South Carolina on December 15th and will be free from then until September 1, 1973 to "finish the novel, "Elizabeth & James;" asking if he can have an extra two weeks to finish "Magic Striptease;" discussing their professional relationship and his financial dealings with respect to his contracts with Doubleday; challenging Vaughan's characterization of him as financially irresponsible; comparing the risk he is to Doubleday to that of James Dickey; defending the decisions he has made and hoping that they can continue to have the "same sort of trust & privilege (not talking about CONTRACT, just CONTACT)."
Assessment of gene regulatory mechanisms utilizing high-throughput data presented at model organism websites by Samuel S Vaughan( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This project addresses the Drosophila diminutive (dm/dmyc) gene and its potential genetic regulators. Inspection of modifications and proteins present locally at a specific gene should regulate that genes transcriptional output and agree with functional associations suggested in the scientific literature. Inspection of data produced from experiments coordinated by modENCODE and FlyBase model organism websites may indicate what conditions exist locally at a gene as expression levels change. Data collected from Chromatin immunoprecipitation, microarray, and sequence analysis experiments covering the Drosophila Myc (dmyc) gene, can be transferred into the Broad Institute's Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV). Once the data is in IGV it is possible to produce graphs. I use the IGV graphs for visualization, comparison, and description of factors that may represent biologically relevant changes (in factor compositions at dmyc) that reflect upon dmyc's gene regulatory mechanisms. The factors under inspection are histone modifications and proteins (complexes) bound at dmyc. Results; Comparisons did identify relative changes in proteins/modifications that mirror in some ways dmyc expression status, This information may reflect biologically relevant changes that are indicative of gene expression alterations and further inspection is needed to make a definitive conclusion. Inspection of the dmyc region in combination with data from modENCODE and FlyBase did identify a possible unidentified response element

Thanking him for the clippings he sent and apologizing "that the Poor Ole [Magic] Striptease didn't do better for you all;" bringing him up to date on his trip to England and Scotland which he hopes will help his new book, on his lectures and readings and his time teaching at Florida International; reporting that he is "settling back to the book with a whole new frame & concept for it;" expressing his appreciation for his patience and investment; saying he hasn't written any poetry in a very long time; recommending a fellow faculty member at Florida International, James Hall, a poet and short story writer, who has just written his first detective novel; asking to whom he should write at Doubleday about him; complimenting Doubleday on the cover for INTRO 6; saying he hasn't "given up on anything except Dispensable Illusions & Self-Deceptions." adding, in ten-page letter, stapled to this letter, dated July 6, 1974 and written from the same address in York Harbor, Maine, his thanks for a suggestion for a book but saying he wants to continue to concentrate on "the historical book;" telling him that with the Guggenheim and a part-time job at Princeton he is managing financially but in a year he will need "the best fulltime job I can grab;" explaining the expenses of the medical condition of his oldest child; saying how much he enjoyed [R.H.W.] Dillard's [The Book of] "Changes" and commenting on its strengths and appeal "to the real hard core of detective fiction buffs. Because his wacky detective, Sir Hugh, is really fun. And he managed to parody & at same time do justice to all the different kinds of detective & suspense stories...And I think Dillard will turn out all right for you;" asking again to whom he should write at Doubleday about a young writer named James Hall, whom he recommended to him a year ago
